    Re: Will this weekends game set the record?

    No. We set the record when our seating capacity was greater than it is now.

    It could be top 5, but not the record.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Erik is right.
    It'll be impossible, given the hillsides are sold out, new stadium configurations, and there are only a few single tickets left. It will, at max, exceed the UNI attendance by a couple hundred.

    There weren't suites all the way across the stadium on the lower west side. I think the addition of those suites took away about 2500 seats.

    Re: Will this weekends game set the record?

    If it ends up over 55,000 like JP says, then it will be top 4 of all time. I really doubt we'll get over the record, but it could end up at #2. I can't remember what the current #2 and #3 are though.

    We'll at least have 2 of our top 5 most attended games this season, and the Texas game should be another huge crowd. Pretty impressive considering that capacity is actually down from a few years ago.

    I think he is talking about setting the record for the Iowa series.

    Agreed, I am anticipating a *slightly* larger crowd than last weekend.

    Thanks for clearing this up for me. When I saw that Saturday's crowed was approx. 2,000 under the record I thought to myself "Where the hell do you put another 2,000 people in here?"

    Can't you add some seats to the top of that new scoreboard of yours?

    The Texas game should be pretty big. Texas won't bring as many fans as UNI or Iowa, but Iowa doesn't have a game that week, so I can see quite a few hawk fans getting a ticket for that game to watch.
    If Texas is undefeated and we are 2-1, at worst, expect another top 10 crowd. If the weather is nice, it has massive potential.
